Remember, 15 years ago, the Patriots gambled on another injured player out of Pitt, Curtis Martin. I wouldn't be at all against them going that route again.
I agree with you on Romeus. My take on the others.
Brooks Reed: His guy has come out of nowhere for me. My grade: late 1st - early 2nd round
Jabaal Sheard: Will not be on BBs draft board character issues.
Sam Acho: Team captain, very smart on and off field but may be too short for BB, if he falls to #92 grab him. My grade: high 3rd round
Greg Romeus: Potential to be special as an elephant type. I think hes worth taking the risk on kid. My grade: late 3rd round
D'Aundre Reed: 3rd DE in rotation at Arizona may be diamond in the rough see Cassell My grade: 5th round
Pernell McPhee: We have plenty of these guys see Watson, Deadrick, Brace. My grade: 6th round pick
Brandon Bair: see McPhee above. My grade: 6th round pick
Ryan Winterswyk: see McPhee above. My grade: 6th round pick
Karl Klug: see McPhee above. My grade: 7th round pick
Bruce Miller: Too short, arms too short My grade: UDFA
Josh McNary: My grade: UDFA
K.J. Wright OLB 63 245 Mississippi State: Has size speed and skills but definitely needs coaching. My grade: early 3rd round
Jeremiha Hunter ILB 62 235 Iowa May be a natural ILB in a 3-4 scheme. Would be a luxury pick. My grade: late 3rd - early 4th round
Ugo Chinasa OLB 65 255 Oklahoma State: Conversion project, combine showed he has the potential. My grade: late 4th - early 5th round
Steven Friday OLB 6'4 245 Virginia Tech: Late bloomer. My grade: late 5th round
Thomas Keiser OLB 6'5 245 Stanford: Came out too early. Stanford used him as rush linebacker's ...had 15.0 career sacks in 25 games. My grade: 6th round
Quentin Davie OLB 63 240 Northwestern: Developmental type. My grade: UDFA
Vince Browne 64 265 Northwestern: Developmental type. My grade: UDFA
Alex Albright OLB 64 250 Boston College Team captain Developmental type. My grade: UDFA
